Annual Rotary Book Sale

For many years, one of Rotary Club of Indianola's projects has been to hold a "USED" Book sale in September.  It used to be held the weekend of "Crazy Days" on the Square, but when the turnout dwindled, the date was moved to the weekend of Log Cabin Days and increased from one day to three days.

The 2017 Annual Rotary Book Sale is currently in jeopardy because we have not received nearly as many books from the community as in the past.  

How does the Book sale work?  People from our community graciously donate used books, books they no longer need or have room to store, to the Indianola Public Library.  The Library sorts the books into several categories after which they are stored until the week of the Book Sale. 

Rotary members gather to retrieve the books from temporary storage, set up tables and place the books on tables for the public sale.  Books are sold during the sale at a price of $1-paperback and $2-hardcover.  Sales proceeds are divided between the Public Library and Rotary Club of Indianola.

Rotary Club of Indianola uses its share of the proceeds to purchase paperback dictionaries, which are distributed to 3-Grade Students in the Indianola School system during the Fall Semester.  

Your HELP is needed.

Rotary Club of Indianola needs more books to make the 2017 Annual Rotary Book Sale a success.  If you have books you no longer need, or need the space in your basement, garage, or attic for other things, gather the books and take them to the Library, which is located at 207 N B Street.  If you have questions, give the Library a call at 961-9418.

Do not forget to stop at our book sale during Log Cabin Days weekend and purchase "a few" that you can read during the cold, snowy days of winter.
